Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - May 23, 1964, Dover, Ohio AFL 'Tables' Expansion For Present Time Bv JIM VAN VALKENBURG KANSAS CITY (AP)-Relaxed and optimistic American Football League owners have decided to wait at least until 1966 to admit new cities into the league. The AFL expansion committee will carry the ball until then. Joe Foss, AFL commissioner, said questionnaires will be sent in the next few weeks to the 20 groups involving 34 individuals from more than a dozen cities expressing interest in joining the league, which starts its fifth season in the fall. The committee headed by Lamar Hunt, Kansas City owner, will screen the backgrounds of all individuals and study drawing potential and facilities in each area. “A team or two might be voted into the league in 1965,’* Foss said, “but no new teams will be fielded until 1966.” Prime reason for the great interest in AFL franchises is the five-year, $36-million television contract signed with National Broadcasting Co. Foss was given a new three-year contract at a raise in pay, bringing his salary close to $50,000. Milt Woodard, assistant commissioner, also received a pay hike. “A boy could run these meetings now that we have quite a few more biscuits in the basket,” Foss said. “Let’s credit television and the appeal of football. “I’m the first to admit the AFL would have gone down the drain long ago if it wasn’t for television.” Dave Dixon of New Orleans and Nash Dowdle of Chicago are the most aggressive franchise seekers, but the list is a long one. Atlanta, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Montreal, Toronto and Louisville are among the other interested cities. Dixon’s proposal to play the leans will be studied by a committee. No action was taken on AFL All-Star game in New Or-Dixon’s idea for a three-game title playoff.

Pizarro’s 5th Keeps Sox First By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer Unlike most players, Juan Pizarro took a vacation this spring. American League batters wish he were still on it. The Chicago White Sox lefthander became the league’s top pitcher Friday night, winning his fifth game without a loss in Chicago’s 3-1 victory over the Washington Senators. Pizarro allowed only four hits, struck out 13 and didn t walk a batter as he lowered his earned-run average to 1.15, best among the league’s starting pitchers. The triumph also kept the White Sox in first place. 20 percentage points ahead of Baltimore. The 27-year-old Puerto Rican pitched winter league ball until mid-February, then rested while he disagreed with the White Sox management over his salary for this year. He finally signed on March 25. He didn’t make his first start until April 24, IO days after the season started. It didn’t take long, though, for Pizarro to show his left arni had none of the soreness that kept him out of action the last five weeks of 1963. Home runs decided three of the four other games played in the American League Friday night. Rocky Colavito’s 12th homer brought Kansas City a 4 3 victory over Boston, ninth-inning homers by Sam Bowens and Johnny Orsino carried Baltimore past Minnesota 6-5, Cleve- Minor League Results By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS International League Rochester 4.

Pizarro, whose strikeout total equaled the major league high for one game this season, also supplied batting punch to Chicago’s attack. His first single scored a run and broke a l l tie in the fifth Giardello Whips Scrappy Rivero By BARRY DAVIS CLEVELAND (AP) — “You can have my share of that little guy from here on,” said middleweight champion Joey Giardello after the rocky finish of a IO round scrap with Argentina’s Rocky Rivero. Although he was hit hard at the finish, Giardello won a unanimous decision in the non-title rematch Friday night. That was better than his split decision over the 27-year-old Rivero April 17, when only one point separated the two. “He did his job—put me in shape for a 15-rounder,” Giardello said. “If I was 22 or 24, I’d take care of him like that,” said the 33-year-old champion, snapping his fingers. “He’s small—tough-to get at. I couldn’t get the range.” Rivero thought he should have won the decision. “I win it very big, but I don’t get it. He was like this,” and Rivero staggered back in a little circle, waving his arms helplessly to demonstrate. In his second fight since winning the title from Dick Tiger last December, Giardello jabbed, counterpunched and back-peddled most of the way, but piled up points steadily. There were no knockdowns in the nationally televised fight, but Rivero landed a right to Gi-ardello’s head in the ninth that staggered the champion. Giardello, 164*4, was most accurate with his punches in the fifth through the eight rounds. Rivero, at 165, tried to get inside but Giardello danced away much of the time. Rivero came on strong in the last two rounds, but Giardello was able to weather the storm and even get in a few licks himself. Referee Mike Minnich had it 46-43, judge Herb Williams 45-44, judge Bill Thomson 46-45. The Associated Press had Giardello the winner 46-44. Billy Joiner, Cincinnati heavyweight, was awarded a technical knockout in the eighth round of a scheduled 10-rounder when Oren Johnson of New York City gave up after taking a terrific beating. In another IO rounder, Amos Johnson, 195, of Medina won a unanimous decision over Cody Jones, 204, Detroit. Doug Agin, 138, Steubenville, took a unanimous decision over Johnny Curtin, 137, Chicago, in six rounds. Bobby Sandello, 120, Cleveland, knocked out Ted Hackett, 121, Painesville in 1:20 of the second round in a scheduled four-rounder. inning. He scored the final run after hitting another single in the seventh. Al Weis drove him in with a single. The Senators scored an unearned run in the first on John Kennedy’s double and Pete Ward’s low throw to first on Bill Skowron’s grounder. 'The Red Sox led 2-1 going into the sixth. Two singles and one out later, Colavito smashed an Earl Wilson pitch over the left-field screen. Colavito also scored the Athletics’ first run in the second when he walked and later came home on Charley Lau’s sacrifice fly. Wilson homered following a single by Roman Mejias in the fifth. The Twins were one out away from a 5-4 victory when the Orioles struck. Reliever Gerry Arrigo had retired all ll batters he faced, striking out the last four. Arrigo got a 1-2 count on Bowens before the youngster connected for his second homer of the game. Arrigo was removed after going 3-0 to Orsino. Bill Fischer threw a strike, then watched as Orsino belted the ball deep into the left-field bleachers. Tony Oliva, Minnesota’s rook-rookie sensation, was beaned in the third inning by Steve Barber, who- was fined $50 by umpire Al Salerno. X rays revealed no injury to Oliva, the league’s leading batter. Errors by Jim Fregosi and Billy Moran led to three Yankee runs. Tom 'fresh and Joe Pepitone singled across runs in the third after Fregosi dropped a throw from Joe Adcock on an attempted force at second. Moran’s fumble on a sacrifice bunt led to a run in the fourth. Ken McBride suffered his seventh straight setback for the Angels after winning on opening day. ;
